Seeing the wilderness of the Amazon is only half the story. This morning we had the privilege of visiting the San Jorge community on the north banks of the Marañon River. Kids on their summer vacation greeted us at the dock, and acted as tour guides at their 400-inhabitant village. We then met with the women of Minga Peru, a NGO focused on women’s empowerment and environmental sustainability. It was hard leaving such an enlightened village, but today would be our longest day of river navigation of the trip, and we would meet the confluence of the true Amazon River before heading up the Ucayali.
